Open Studios at The Forge
Saturday and Sunday
21st and 22nd May 2016
A CREATIVE hub in Digswell, Welwyn announces a chance for the public to see new works in May during a weekend of Open Studios.
Open Studios at The Forge is a celebration of the visual arts and creative process, offering a unique opportunity to meet a wide variety of artists in their studios, which are only open to the public during this event. The diverse group of artists at The Forge, who exhibit both nationally and internationally, will reveal their latest work and will be on site at the purpose built studios to meet visitors. The artists are part of the renowned and long established Digswell Arts, which provides a platform for artists to explore new ways of working and reach new audiences. Each artist at Digswell takes a unique approach to their practice and exhibits widely. A wide range of contemporary work will be on show, as well as individual pieces for sale at the large purpose built space set in beautiful countryside. The Forge houses ten artist studios as well as a print studio, equipped with one of the largest etching presses in the country. Visiting artists and complete beginners interested in print techniques will also be able to talk with printmaker Sally Tyrie who runs popular print workshops at The Forge and an ‘Open Access’ programme.
